Emergency Medical Services for Children
Pediatric Jump Kit Bags (Ped Bags) - GFWC OJWC's first EMSC project!  It's about providing Emergency Medical Service providers with well organized, easily accessible and properly sized equipment to help save the lives of our children.  GFWC OJWC funded Ped Bags for Waukesha County ambulances.

Adopting the belief that our community is much larger than just our own city, GFWC OJWC members have donated over $8,000 to help fund Ped Bags for ambulances in communities that can't afford them.  One EMS department said "We are thrilled to receive this for our ambulance - what a great project ...to sponsor!  We received an ambulance call for a 22 month old that was in seizure activity.  It was nice to have this kit ready to grab knowing full well that it was completely stocked with anything and everything we could possibly need...  We now have peace of mind knowing we have the necessary equipment it takes to care for the youngest patients..."

Since 2002, EMSC has been a signature area of interest for our club.  Most recently we have teamed with leading emergency medical providers in Milwaukee and Waukesha Counties to devise a system of providing protocols for children with special health care needs to EMS providers.
